Hi guys,

I own an Xperia Z1(c6902 running 4.4.4), So I want to flash custom ROMS(PAC in particular) here's what I did:

1. Rooted using tr.apk
2. Backed up DRM keys
3. Unlocked bootloader


And now I don't quite know what to do exactly.
Q1. I can't see any thread to flash CWM/TWRP after unlocking bootloader?
Q2. Is recovery a part of the kernel? (If I flash doomlord will i get a custom recovery?)
Q3. If i want to unroot completely(to retain warranty) I should just flash stock kernel and relock bootloader right(Restore DRM keys)?

Also suggest me a stable recovery thread, I just want to flash custom ROMs that's all
Please answer me ASAP fellas

Recovery is in the kernel, flash a ny custom kernel for stock then flash the update.zip of your choice of rom in recovery

Best bet is to try them yourself, I think they are all stable enough for you to flash it for the 1-2 minutes you will have it to flash a custom rom.
